Pause and Reflect on How Far You've Come
Posted on 28th January 2023 at 12:23
Hello beautiful people and souls,
Today I just want to ask you to slow down, pause for a moment and acknowledge how far you’ve come.
I want to be real with you for a minute — there is so much I want out of my life, and I’m sure you do too.
And I’m relentlessly working on realizing those dreams.
If you’re a bit like me, you keep pushing and putting more pressure on yourself to deliver — setting new goals and raising the bar of expectations year after year.
And sometimes, you crash — like I do
Many times, you fall down — like I do.
A few times, I nearly reached burnout — I hope you never do.
But in those moments, when you find yourself in a whirlwind of emotions and overwhelm, there is only one magic potion that can lift your spirits: looking back to reflect on how far you’ve come.
And this happens because we simply forget.
We forget who we were 10 years ago. We forget how far we’ve come since. We forget how much we’ve grown as a human.
We forget all the tough times we had to face along the way and how stronger we became. We forget all the risks we were so brave to take.
So today I just want to say, friend, slow down and be proud of how far you’ve come. Celebrate, treat yourself to something nice, spend some time with your tribe and just be proud of all you have achieved so far. Believe me, this will help you go even further.
This is what I did today. I took a break and had a coffee with an amazing executive and leadership coach Sharon Redmond and we celebrated how far we’ve come.
Be good to yourself today and always.
As always take care, stay safe and talk soon.
